On October 6, 2012 EOR held it’s inaugural 5k to raise money for clean water and sanitation in Gonbissa Kussaye, Ethiopia. Over 70 people completed the 5k course that wound through SharonWoods Metro park in Columbus, OH. It was a cold morning and lots of rain was expected. However, by the time the runners began to arrive it was bright and sunny.
We had been told by the race company not to expect ANY profit the first year of the run. Clearly, they didn’t know the support that YOU give to Ethiopian Orphan Relief. Over $3,000 came in from donors, sponsors, and participants.
We are in the beginning stages of planning next year’s 5k. We know it will be even bigger and better than this year. Follow the Running Water page on facebook to get info on next year’s event. http://www.facebook.com/RunningWaterEOR5k?ref=hl
